The best garlic mashed potatoes that you will ever taste!! If you don't grow your own garlic, look for scapes in a specialty shop or farmer's market.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs yukon gold potatoes
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup garlic scape, very finely chopped
- 1⁄3 cup whipping cream
- Cook potatoes in salted boiling water until tender.
- Melt butter& saute scapes for about 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat& stir in cream.
- Drain potatoes& mash.
- Add garlic mixture& combine well.
This is incredible! I used half of the butter the recipe called for, and Evaporated Skim Milk rather than the whipping cream to save calories. It was still delicious. Sauteing the scapes mellows the flavor a bit, so they have a nice flavor that is not too strong.
These are excellent mashed potatoes!!! The garlic taste is very nice and not overpowering. I used red potatoes instead of the Yukon Golds. I also used half-and-half instead of the cream. They were creamy!! I am going to make this again but next time I will use the cream to make them even creamier. Thanks CountryLady for a great recipe!
Wonderful, wonderful mashed potatoes! The scapes add a nice garlicky flavor yet taste so fresh at the same time. We mashed russet potatoes, and used half and half instead of heavy cream, then served with grilled steak - the perfect early summer dinner!
